    If a cream stings when applied on the eye area, is that good or bad?

    Related Topics
    Recently, i seem to have developed eczema on my neck and also noticed the wrinkles around my eyes seemed to be more evident. Not sure if the dryness around my eyes is eczema related. I tried using QV flare up cream on the area around my eyes but it stings initially. However, i feel it helped soothe the dryness. Is the stinging alright or should i use something else around the eye area. is there any eye cream you can recommend for extreme facial dryness?

    The delicate eye area should be treated with a cream specifically designed for that area - there are sensitive skin ones available which are a lot milder and will not sting but still moisturise.  A cream should soothe the skin and not sting - however with some eczema sites a small amount of stinging can happen when the skin is open.
